K9N PLATINUM DRIVER
Bottom line At the moment we have nothing to compare these motherboards with, and they are almost identical to each other with an exception of SLI support. Indeed, the retention system of the new boxed coolers has been modified four holes at the edge of the frame , but traditional projections are preserved as well for compatibility. Note the support for two gigabit network adapters, integrated into the new chipset. You can select two modes of the CPU fan, to control its rotational speed: It’s inferior to the Diamond series only in its bundle and “safety margin” of the cooling system.

Memory voltage regulator uses capacitors from Rubycon and is reinforced with L elements.
Bottom line At the moment we have nothing to compare these motherboards with, and they are almost identical to each other with an exception of SLI support. Note that enthusiast series MSI Diamond, in particular will be still bundled with robust cooling systems for this chipset.
Besides, video cards in PCI Express x16 slots can be powered from the standard 4-pin peripheral connector. This is a couple of similar boards the differences are described below occupying high positions in MSI’s product series. Thus, only coolers with the original retention system may be left out of it – their installation required removing the standard frame and securing the assembly right through the mounting holes in a motherboard. Note that the motherboard has no jumpers to select video slot modes, they are switched on the chipset level.
Smart Fan mode is available only with a 4-pin cooler.
MSI K9N Platinum, AM2+, AMD (MS-7250-020) Motherboard
Since we had enough time to look at peculiarities of AMD’s new platform, let’s not delay and proceed to the first Socket AM2 motherboards in our l9n kindly provided by MSI. It overhangs a motherboard at one side, tied to it through an insulating pad. Look at the passive cooling of the chipset – such a solution was exotic for nForce4, but it promises to become typical for the th series.
Though a bit expensive, they are solidly packed with cabling, brackets and manuals as well as additional and chipset controllers and ports. But if you had such plans, then you have at least two motherboards that can help build a good system with Socket AM2. When the upper threshold is crossed, the fan accelerates to its maximum speed. MSI engineers use a long low-profile heatsink.
It’s not installed on the center of the chip. Indeed, the retention system of the new boxed coolers has been modified four holes at the edge of the framebut traditional projections are preserved as well for compatibility.
The core logic chip on the first production motherboards has an official designation already.
MSI K9N Platinum and MSI K9N SLI Platinum Motherboards on NVIDIA nForce Ultra/SLI Chipset
The motherboard was stable at the standard frequencies. The heatsink gets very hot. When the temperature is within the specified range, the rotational speed platinu raised stepwise.
For the only difference that Socket has three of them at each side of the plahinum, and now only the central one is left. Note the support for two gigabit network adapters, integrated into the new chipset.
Still, considering the previous experience, we can say that both K9N Platinum boards are interesting products. BioShock Infinite and Metro: Platjnum usual feature of such boards is rich functionality and thorough packages without any fanciful expensive toys. All capacitors are always from one manufacturer, but not from the first echelon unknown brand.
MSI K9N Platinum – motherboard – ATX – Socket AM2 – nForce 570 Ultra
There are no empty seats on this motherboard — Platinum series from MSI traditionally differs from “simple” models by a full set of additional controllers, provided by the board design. The board is equipped with a 4-pin ATX12V connector. The frame is fixed to the motherboard in four instead of two points. The second port yellowalways operating in PCI Express x1 mode, can be used for the second video card – for another pair of monitors. The mentioned BIOS parameters are available in this version, but the viability of non-standard settings hasn’t been tested.
We do not see any sense in rushing towards AMD’s new platform. Sandy Bridge Trying out the new method.
